Union Square Neighbors
Union Square Neighbors (USN) is a grassroots, independent neighborhood association dedicated to helping residents and stakeholders of Union Square shape the future of their community. Our vision is for a healthier, greener, and more vibrant Union Square that includes buildings and places that reflect the inventive, unique, and historic character that people love about our neighborhood. We seek to help inform and engage people in these issues and advocate for Union Square. We invite you to read our bylaws here.
Union Square Neighbors holds periodic business meetings from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at locations announced on our email listserv in advance. In addition, working groups meet on issues of current interest. Those meetings are coordinated and announced on our email list.
Steering Committee: JT Scott, Stephanie Hirsch, Andy Greenspon, Suzanne Bremer, Stuart Dash, Sam Engelstad, Jim McGinnis, Philip Parsons, Shu Talun, and Tim Talun.
Membership in Union Square Neighbors is open to any resident, property owner, business owner, or employee who lives or works in and around Union Square including the neighborhoods of Union Square East, Union Square West, Prospect Hill, Lincoln Park, Duck Village, Boynton Yards, and Brickbottom.
